Chore Chart

This post is technically not a using what you've got post, but I wanted to share it!

I have such a hard time with chore charts and checklists.  It has to be easy or it gets tossed to the curb.  Life is so busy and finding a way to simplify is my goal for the year.  After trying multiple chore lists I came up with the following plan.

I purchased a magnetic white board and some pretty scrapbook paper.  I was able to tuck the paper under the edges of the frame to hold them in place.  I used some chocolate brown bias tape to cover the paper seams.

For the chore items, I printed off each chore and glued it onto a small magnet.   For my younger child, I drew pictures so that he could visually see what was on his list.

Each morning, the items are lined up along the left side of their board.  As they complete each item, they move the magnet piece to the right side of their board.  We can all see at a glance what has been completed and what more needs to be done.  So far so good!
